The Library Field - Next Library

The Library Field

Both Monday and Tuesday

Expo

Join Nate Hill, Executive Director Metropolitan New York Library Council, in an artful proposal of “The Library Field” as an experimental vision for what a sustainable institution could be if it is of, by and for the land it inhabits. The library field is a playful take on inviting participants to engage in the proces.

 

Host

Nate Hill

Nate grew up in upstate New York and began his career in libraries at Brooklyn Public Library’s Stone Avenue Branch. After almost ten years of service and several different roles within Brooklyn Public Library, he relocated to Silicon Valley to retrain and re-tool as a web designer and developer for the San Jose Public Library. Before joining METRO in June 2015, Nate served as Deputy Director of the Chattanooga Public Library, where he led the 4th Floor project, a 12,000 square foot library loft space featuring a public access makerspace, civic laboratory, and gigabit laboratory.

Nate was named a “Mover and Shaker” by Library Journal in 2012. He earned his undergraduate degree in art from Skidmore College and an MLIS from Pratt Institute’s School of Information and Library Science.
